International Women’s Day is a yearly celebration of women’s achievements in the social, economic, cultural, and political spheres. This day also brings attention to gender equality and women’s rights.
- In Indonesia, young women from disadvantaged families face a gender bias, as sons are prioritized to receive higher education. As a result, daughters are often forced to practice their household and cultural duties.
- Unskilled women get pregnant earlier and have more children than their educated peers, continuing the poverty cycle. Also, orphans mostly come from unskilled women.
- Lacking knowledge, unskilled women are more prone to contract HIV/AIDS and other diseases. They are also more vulnerable to prostitution, trafficking, and slave labor.
